HYPNOTHERAPY

 



Practitioner

 

Marilyn Upton

Brief explanation about the therapy

Hypnotherapy is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person's imagination in a way that helps elicit changes in some perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts and behaviours.


What can the client expect at the appointment


In a typical hypnotherapy session the hypnotherapist and client will discuss the intended alterations or therapeutic goals desired.  The hypnotherapist will ask questions about previous medical history, general health and lifestyle to decide on the best approach for the individual.


 

What will happen in a session

In nearly every session there is a relaxation time, which is very pleasant and helps a client move forward.  Also the client and Marilyn discuss the client's issue.

 

How many sessions should the client need before they see a result

Six sessions are often adequate for a complete change to take place but sometimes the client requests more than that for some ongoing support.

 

What can the therapy help


Hypnotherapy may be found to be helpful for those seeking relief from a range of problems and is used alongside a person's own willpower and motivation to seek a desired goal.  It is often used to help relieve anxiety, aid sleeping, help to address bed wetting, address attitudes to weight and help clients achieve behavioural change to stop smoking.  It may also help with minor skin conditions that are exacerbated by stress and confidence issues, and may also be used to enhance performance in areas such as sport and public speaking.  Hypnotherapy may help people to cope with and manage the relief of perceived pain.


Hypnotherapy has also been used with both adults and children to help manage the pain associated with irritable bowel.  There is evidence to support its use in this condition for both adults and children and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Guidance (NICE) recommends the NHS should consider referring patients for hypnotherapy if their irritable bowel is persistent and has failed to respond to simple prescribed medicine.



Footnote

 

This therapy can be linked with Stress Management , Life Management and CBT. Each one is used to help the client achieve changes to make their life better. When working with Marilyn, she will at some point take the client to a pleasant state of Relaxation where things can be seen very clearly and positive thoughts can replace negative ones.
